Please note that coats of arms belong to individuals and not surnames. All of our coats of arms are based on actual historical reference material. Keep in mind that although heraldry is not an exact science, we have attempted to be as accurate as possible in designing these coats of arms. If you have concerns, please refer to the FAQ section of this website to read more about how we determined which coat of arms to use, and what historical material was used to design these family crests.
A special note about our Irish collection:
To search for a name first look for it without prefix, then under O', then under "Mac", then under Fitz. Keep in mind that Irish Surnames have many name variants. We have included the area in Ireland where the original bearer was registered, when known. All arms were recorded in Ireland.
Some of the research materials used in creating this collection were Irish Families-Edward MacLysaght, Burke's General Armoury 1878, Rietstap's Armorial General, Surnames of Ireland-MacLysacht, Encyclopaedia Heraldica, 1828, by William Berry, and Irish Arms-by Paul Murtaugh.
Please note that the term "family crest" is a misnomer. The crest is actually a portion of the coat of arms. It refers to the region above helmet that is on top of the shield, which often depicts beasts. Our coats of arms have omitted the crest portion of the arms.
